Hotel Telegraaf began it's life as a post office and telephone centre in 1878, but has since been renovated into a modern 5-star establishment. Guests at My City Hotel can enjoy a large collection of Italian art that decorates the walls as well as fresh baked breakfasts and an in-house spa, all without leaving the Old Town.
For elegant yet budget-friendly accommodation, look just outside the Old Town. For a taste of "manor elegance right in the heart of Tallinn", book a room at the Von Stackelberg Hotel, a 19th century city estate of German-Baltic Baron von Stackelberg. Each of the rooms at the modern Solo Sokos Hotel Estoria, in the city centre, are different and tell an individual story. The Park Inn by Radisson Central Tallinn, just across the street, is around the corner from the lively Rotermanni quarter.
